Stat is medical term for ASAP. I am familiar with this because I always hear this term from my sister as well as nurse cousins, who are working in the hospital. They use this whenever they need to take action immediately. These days, stat is not only applicable to actions but also to the doctors' knowledge on certain medical concepts. This is made possible by the newest gadgets that these healthcare practitioners use in their daily activities. These days, most doctors already have a smartphone or a PDA which has a PDA medical software that they can consult anytime they need to check on certain drug information such as its dosage, side effects. They will no longer have to go to another room just to browse on their books. All the information that they needed are present stat. I agree that this is an important software which is distributed by Epocrates, Inc.
